Monthly Mineral Chronicles Volume 7 Issue 2

Welcome to volume 7 issue 2 of Monthly Mineral Chronicles. This is a publication pulled together by a mineral collector for mineral collectors.

This month, in this 68 page full-colour issue we have the following articles:

  • Montezuma Mine, Tombstone District, Cochise Co. Arizona. This month, Rolf tells us about the Montezuma Mine – finding opal but no gold!
  • A visit to the new Minerals Gallery in the Australian Museum. James takes us on a virtual tour of the recently revamped mineral displays at the Australian Museum, Sydney, Australia.
  • Minerals and Elements: Nickel. The next in the series, nickel, another useful metal.
  • Mineral Snippet – Takanelite. James tells us all about the manganese oxide, takanelite.
  • Illustrated Minerals of Australia Volume 3, Part 7 – Haapalaite to Hannayite. The next installment of a significant undertaking documenting the 1,500 or so mineral species recorded in Australia.
  • Locality Snippet – Taquaral, Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil. This month, we look at “roscherite” from this Brazilian locality.

Again this month, for many of the excellent images, is the ability to click on the image to bring up a larger version. Not only do you get a bigger version, but in some cases, the image you see published may be a cropped version.

This issue is now available at Kofi.
